I can still see your face.

Mike used to keep me up nights showing me his photos of his wife and kids back in Chicago. He had this pink photo album. I was the new guy so I felt obligated to endure his incessant ravings about wanting to become a cop when he got home. The other guys would just laugh at me thankfully because they had been through the same slide show.

I was transferred to H company where we had an aid track complete with a doctor and RN. We heard that G troop had been hit and we were getting a casualty. A track had been hit by Claymores that had been turned around and detonated by a clacker. The only guy that got off the chopper was Mike's friend, the driver, who was protected in the driver's hatch. He was carrying the pink photo album.

Below is a pic of me, "Doc."

You are honored!

Dear Micheal,
I am doing an extra credit assignment for my world history class at Gridley High School. For every twenty-five remembrances we post, we will receive an A. We are only aloud to do one hundred. I am on my last twenty-five. I would like to say thank you for everything you did in the war. You will always be remembered! May God Bless You!
Sincerely Yours:
Katie Enright
